The greatest amount of waste produced in the world is seat belt from the massive automobile industry. Seat belt must undergo strict tests to adhere to industry safety standards. When materials don’t pass they are discarded with
no further use in the automotive market.
However, even those failed materials have great specification and quality. We rescue them and give new life to this highly useful object. Unbeknownst to many, seat belt has fantastic qualities that make it an ideal candidate for a beautifully up-cycled bag. Furthermore, it has unique strength (like a 2 ton weight capacity), water resistance, and other properties that are hard to come by with other off the shelf bags.
